I would really like to have the lyrics to this.(I'm lazy, if someone has them on file, it is easier than trying to copy from the CD). Jim

For the record, here are the lyrics and chords.

RANDALL COLLINS
(Norman Blake)

CHORUS
Fifteen dollars is my game, fifteen is my draw
Randall Collins is my name in the state of Arkansas

1. Rollin' dice in the railroad yard won't get you much jack
Workin' on that section gang will surely break your back.
CHORUS

2. Hidin' out by the water tank, where the shade is cool.
Watchin' that straw boss huntin' me, well I ain't nobody's fool.
CHORUS

3. They're makin' up a train in the Memphis yard, the longest I ever saw.
Gonna' ride it down to Fairbanks town in the state of Arkansas.
CHORUS

Fifteen dollars is my game, fifteen is my draw
Randall Collins is my name in the state of Arkansas


Transcribed by ear from the 1987 Norman Blake recording, Slow Train Through Georgia
